Small Talks Campaign

Alcohol can do lasting damage to a kid’s grown brain, impacting everything from how they learn and make decisions to how they handle emotions. But you don’t need a big speech to help a kid understand the dangers of underage drinking. Start small instead. Having a lot of small, casual talks while at the store, in the drive-thru or between video games can make a big difference in a kid’s health. Start around age eight to prepare kids to make a lifetime of healthy decisions. Visit SmallTalksWI.org for tips, facts and more. This campaign is sponsored by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

Prescription Drug Take Back Event- New Glarus

We partnered with the New Glarus Farmers Market and the New Glarus Police Department for an opportunity for community members to bring their unwanted and/or expired medication to the Farmers Market for proper disposal. We ended up collecting 12 pounds of raw medication!! Thank you to everyone who stopped by!

By disposing of your medications properly, you helped to keep them out of our landfills, our waters, and the hands of our youth.
